HD-Vinyl 24/96 (EMI) Johannes Brahms – 15 Hungarian Dances for Piano (Cziffra)

Many thanks to our friend Trottar for this beauty
Who else but Cziffra could play these transcriptions? When you hear him play for example the 5th dance, it seems he had wrote it himself. Cziffra’s technique permitted him to play everything like he wanted to play it, he had no difficulties, and, his interpretation was always interesting. He was a real musician, when he played ten times a piece on concert, it was ten times different, you had the impression to hear it for the first time.

Ripping Infos


If You hear some clicks and pops here and there, Who cares?
Id rather have a few light anomalies instead of destroying the music.
Enjoy the music, not the ticks & pops.
I tend more and more, in the last time, to de-click with an automatic setting between 0.7 and 1.2 so you can say, my rips are like half rough rips.

  • Software: iZotope RX 4 Advanced, Adobe Audition CS 5.5, Twisted Wave 1.9
  • Very light de-clicking with iZotope, significant clicks manually removing, no de-noising
  • DR-Analisys before converting to Flac
  • Converting Wave -> Flac: Twisted Wave 1.9
  • Artwork: Sony Alpha 350, Epson Perfection V750 Pro, Photoshop CS 5.5

  1. Dear Alf, many thanks. A very rare LP from June 1958 rec. originally by Pathé Marconi. Cziffra forced the original to a very virtous music. Trottar

    • From the notes of the CD:
      – n. 1-15 enregistrées à Senlis (Chapelle Saint-Frambourg) dans les années 1982-1983;
      – n. 16-20 enregistrées à Paris (Salle Wagram) XII 1957.

      Thank you Trottar & Rachmaninov for these beautiful performances of the great Cziffra.

  2. Yes, incredible pianism and vision into Brahm’s pieces!
    Another winner, sir.
    And thanks also to Trottar for allowing us to hear this in Hi Def.


  3. Gyorgy Cziffra??? who knew the name…? Well now I do. I’ll continue to be astounded by RACH-man (and his team) and will sit very still and prepare to soak it all in.
    thx MILLIONS

  4. Thanks a lot Rach and Trottar .

    Any chance to have Liszt’s Hungarian Rhapsodies always by Cziffra, too ?

    Keep up the good work.
